You may remember reading back in August that Lanvin’s Alber Elbaz was designing a line of denim with Acne, appropriately dubbed Acne/Lanvin. Well the line is finally will finally be available beginning next Thursday at select Barney’s New York stores or at Acne Studios online. But don’t get too excited yet, because the line is expected to sell out in retail stores within the first two days! Priced from $455 for jeans to $1,350 for more lavish pieces like dresses or a blazer–just goes to show you that the fashion world’s love for Elbaz isn’t about to end with Lanvin (and neither will their spending!). The collection is 28 pieces, and “combines the classic style and impeccable detailing of Lanvin with the slightly rugged and hip look that Acne is famous for,” says Doria Santofler of New York Magazine.
If you didn’t get a chance to read the previous post on this line, definitely check out all the details here!
Here are some views from the look book, and also some of the models in ACNE/Lanvin at their recent kick off soiree in Paris. I adore the looks…I feel they shout the femininity and sophistication of Lanvin that we’d always expect…and yet don’t exclude the fun, girliness that makes us fall for denim everytime. What do you think? Is ACNE/Lanvin for you too?
